What are geek buddies and how do I get some.

Does anyone want to be my friend?

Geekbuddies is one of the coolest features on BGG. Just click the star/plus icon near people's name and they're now your geekbuddy. You can then search for games based on geekbuddy recommendations, check for content/ratings, and more.

Ok, you got me. Actually, we have quite a few interests in common, even outside of boardgaming. Music especially, you got good taste man! Check out my games collection, you might find a few things you like.

Well, you are now my Geekbuddy...you press the little star icon, yes. You might want to check out the 'Profile' icon first, see what games they like.

Also see my list [url] http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi... [/url] about my Geekbuddies.

Also, I created a perl code that can find geek buddies based on your ratings. This way you know your geek buddies opinions are close to yours.

Check it out

There is a link near the bottom of the thread where you can download the program.
